How do I use that tool?

When it comes to tools, Alteryx has a full box! With over 200 tools and macros in the basic installation, you may wonder how you'll master them all. Don't worry - we have 'apps' for that!

 

Alteryx tools are designed to be focused and specific in their function - simple, yet powerful. Understanding what goes in and out while grasping what happens in-between makes the most sense in a workflow and that is why we have One-Tool Examples in the product. 

 

One Tool Examples

 

One Tool Examples are sample workflows that demonstrate different configuration options for one tool at a time. You can access them a couple of different ways:

 

1 - From the Help Menu: Go to  Sample Workflows > Learn one tool at a time > Tool Category

2 - From the Tool Palette: Click on a tool and then click Open Example:

3 - From Global Search: Search a tool name. If that tool has a One Tool Example, an Example button will display on the right. Clicking the Example button will open the One Tool Example:

The following list of tools, organized by tool category, have a One Tool Example in Alteryx version 2020.1:

Is there a way for me to print a legible copy of the examples?

@sduvall There is a Print option in the File menu...

@sduvallDo you want to print the list of examples or do you want to print the workflows themselves? If the latter, follow the info given by @NeilR. If the former, I want to let you know that this list is frequently updated and expanded. A good resource to see the latest one tool examples added to the list, see the release notes

here. In the latest version, many examples were added to the Spatial category.
